Goodbye Weekend

How To Be Pretentious: II Part Selfie
Sunny Spring fun has definitely ~not~ been happening; I have been revising for my scary exams in Cornwall, right by the sea, so I can hear the sea from my bed and it's lovely. However, the lighthouse opposite the cove shines into my room every night and it's very difficult to sleep. 
(perfect 4 revision, kids)
My darling scanner has died (I'm in mourning) and I finished my moleskine, so I've had to photograph my sketchbook, sorry 4 poor quality </3 
This holiday I took a fun day-trip to Ikea and made a terrarium and irrecoverably fell in love with Mac Demarco and read some Evelyn Waugh books and watched hideous amounts of Netflix. Apart from that, most of my time was spent lying face-down on my bedroom floor, thinking about exams- so all in all v productive and time well spent. (I wna die)
An unfortunate birthday selfie: UO cap, Liberty shirt, vintage skirt, Topshop socks and Vagabond boots

Butterscotch Sundae

I saw The Double (directed by Richard Ayoade) yesterday and it was really good: Richard Ayoade is sucha babe and Submarine (his debut) is my all time favourite film, so The Double had a lot to live up to. It wasn't quite as good, but the cinematography was so fab and the cast was spot on. 

I've spent the past week watching a ton of films, drinking tea, not leaving the house and listening to The Velvet Underground on repeat so idek what state that has left me in..
I have exams very very soon so everything is becoming very stressful, but I found some time to draw, so my art coursework is all finished and I can do my own drawings so here are some scans too..

The talented Amber took some fab photos of me in Regents Park a few weeks ago, inspired by Margot Tenenbaum (Royal Tenenbaums)("I'll have a butterscotch sundae I guess..") which was super cute and Springy, because it was lovely and sunny and we walked through daffodils and talked about summer.. it was a splendid affair
Here's one (and you can see the others here)
